I am an assistant professor at UC San Diego in the ECE department. I am affliated with the CSE department, Center for Visual Computing, Contextual Robotics Institute, and Artificial Intelligence Group. I am a member of the Robotics team in the TILOS NSF AI Institute.
I was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley with Alexei Efros and Trevor Darrell. I received a Ph.D. in robotics from the Carnegie Mellon University, at where I worked with Abhinav Gupta. Here is my PhD Thesis.
I am hiring self-motivated Ph.D. students starting Fall 2022 from both CSE and ECE departments. See more details here.
There are openings for interns (remote and in-person) starting Spring and Summer 2022.
I am interested in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Robotics. Specifically on the topics of Self-Supervised Learning, Video Understanding, Common Sense Reasoning, RL and Robotics, 3D Interaction, Dexterous Hand.
I gave a talk in the Workshop on Generalizable Policy Learning in the Physical World in ICLR 2022, on Generalizing Dexterous Manipulation by Learning from Humans.
I gave a talk in the Tutorial on Large Scale Holistic Video Understanding in ICCV 2021, on Learning to Perceive Videos for Embodiment.
I gave a talk in the Large-scale Video Object Segmentation Challenge Workshop in CVPR 2021, on Self-Supervised Representation Learning with Videos.
I am co-organizing the 3rd Tutorial on Learning Representations via Graph-structured Networks in CVPR 2021. Here is the recorded video.
I am co-organizing the Comprehensive Tutorial on Video Modeling in CVPR 2021.
I am serving as an Area Chair for CVPR 2021,2022, AAAI 2021, ICCV 2021.
I gave a talk in Nvidia on Self-Supervised Learning. Here is the recorded video.
I am co-organizing the Workshop on Sensing, Understanding and Synthesizing Humans in ECCV 2020.
I am co-organizing the 2nd Tutorial on Learning Representations via Graph-structured Networks in CVPR 2020. Here is the recorded video.
